Show Notes:
We spun the globe vigorously this week, featuring new releases, tunes from artists coming soon for shows in the Northwest, and more. The show fell on the same day as The Evergreen State College's graduation, so when an Internet listener called from Boston requesting music from South Africa (which he dedicated to graduates from the Tacoma campus), I obliged with an entire set (Vusi, Shiyani Ngcobo, and Juluka). Consider that a preview of next week's show, when Spin the Globe features primarily music from South African artists.

# Our cover song of the week made up for lost time, ... we really had three covers. 1) a tribute marking the passing of Mr. Ray Charles, in the form of a cover of "Hit the Road Jack" by Mo' Horizons; 2) Skapara's manic Ellington cover "Skaravan"; and 3) from Lila Down's brand-new CD a fresh version of "La Bamba."
